Casey Selzer (Founder and Primary Educator) is a graduate of Columbia University's Nurse-Midwifery Program and a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (CNM, RN, MSN, BSN and LCCE). After undergraduate studies in studio art and work on organic farms in California and Vermont, Casey found her way to her life’s work in women’s health when she was trained through a Community Health Initiative in Massachusetts providing Birth and Postpartum Doula care for low income families in 2002. 

Eager to deepen her understanding of the journey at hand facing new families and with a desire to reach an even larger population - Casey moved to New York City to pursue a career in Midwifery. Since 2007 she has provided full scope midwifery care to women and families in both public and private health care settings in NYC. Casey was elected Co-Chair of the NYC Midwives Chapter (an affiliate of NYSALM) in May 2017 and is honored to be serving a two year tenure.

Casey has spent the past seven years as a clinical midwife with Midwifery of Manhattan, a small group midwifery practice based out of Mt. Sinai West in Manhattan. The birth of Parent Craft allows her to shift her focus to educational support during the childbearing years.

Sharing in this transformational process with families is both a privilege and a joy.

She brings to her teaching 15 years of diverse clinical experience having attended over 600+ births and the personal adventure of birthing 3 daughters, a big sister and identical twins. She lives, works and parents in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Tia Zlotnikoff (Fourth Trimester Class Educator + New Moms Group Facilitator) has devoted the past 13 years of her professional life to supporting new moms and families with newborns. She believes passionately that postpartum support is a natural extension of prenatal care, and that every family deserves compassionate and intelligent assistance during the life-altering transition from pregnancy to parenting.

Tia provides non-judgmental and compassionate support around infant feeding, postpartum recovery, transition to parenthood, and newborn care and behavior.

She is an experienced ally to the brand new breastfeeding relationship, and she specializes in helping parents understand their unique new baby day to day, and week to week, as a path towards finding and gaining confidence in their own parenting style.

After earning a bachelors degree in Women's History and four years of community organizing in Boston, Tia trained and certified as a Postpartum Doula with Doulas of North America. Following a learning-year working with a doula cooperative, she launched her own postpartum support practice in 2005 and has since worked with hundreds of families-in-transition. Along the way, she helped manage The Maternal Wellness Center, a non-profit organization that provided free perinatal services to families in need. Tia has been a student and lay practitioner of western herbs and aromatherapy for 20 years and is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor (AADP).

She moved to Park Slope from Philadelphia in 2016 with her husband, her infant daughter, and her big white dog that she rescued from the streets of North Philadelphia.
